JVC Mini DV Camera - Lens cap

Model: GR-D23EK.

When trying to record the screen shows the comment "lense cap". Any ideas what it could be and how I could fix it.

Thanks

Lens may be closed with a cover or with some kind of dust or dirt.
Aim at bright light subject. Get out of the house and try to capture in outdoor.

When the amount of light detected by the camera is next to zero, this message will appear. If the lens cap is off, then the problem is that the iris is stuck shut. This is not a common problem, but is not unheard of either. If this is the case, the unit needs service. This is not a repair that should be done by an inexperienced person. This involves dis-assembling part of the optical pathway. Figure around $100 for the repair.

How to operate gr-d70k digital video camera?do i need recording tape even they have a memory card?and how to change the language from japanese to english


You will need a Mini DV tape to record videos. The memory card can only record snapshots. When you rotate the LCD panel away from the body of the camera, you will see some controls. On the left of the second row, there is a switch. Set it to Memory to record to the memory card. Set the switch to Video to record to the tape.

I'm not sure how to change the language. There are no language options for the GR-D70.

The manual for the JVC GR-D70 is available here: http://www.jvc.co.uk/files/instruction_manual/lyt1145-001a.pdf . I believe that the GR-D70K will work the same way.

I hope this helps.

There is a good chance that the iris is stuck shut. Try tapping the side of the camera lightly to try and release it. If the camera can show you old pictures that are currently stored correctly, I would suspect the iris.

Rang a few repairers & was advised by all that it is a common problem & that it relates to the CCD chip, which will need to be replaced. I am now waiting for the camera to return to me(it's only been 2 days).

Looking through the problems posted for all jvc camcorders it became obvious that mine was CCD problem, encountered by many others. Also jvc are fixing this for free, so if you have this problem go to a jvc sevice centre and you should have no problems. Suffice to say this site was invaluable in diagnosing my problem, and you have been recommended to my friends. Thankyou, I'll be back.
